“I found out that my biggest competitive advantage was my culture.” - Piyush Patel
Piyush Patel - Orange for Creativity
The tech world has been defined by blacks and grays long after its conception. Piyush figured that in order to stand out, they needed to embrace their own color. Deciding on using orange effectively differentiated them from everybody else.
Piyush also says that orange is the color of creativity at work, an effect coming full circle when the color was first chosen for their brand.
Overcoming the Culture Hurdle
Piyush remembers a time when he hated going to work. This is hugely attributed to the fact that the basic foundation of any company, its core values, weren’t established.
“I had to kind of go on this journey myself of ‘Who am I?’ and ‘What am I gonna stand for?’ And that’s gotta be the company core values.” - Piyush Patel
Realizing what these values are, Piyush came back to a company that has started to turn around and grow into the big thing that it is now today.
